Listen up. It’s time to tell you a little secret about the lady in your life before Valentine’s Day. She’s been hinting at it for a while, but you’re too afraid of making a big commitment. She wants your beer. See how her eyes light up every time you crack open a Kräftig? It’s time to quit dragging your feet and start figuring out why Kräftig is a girl’s best friend.
Even though we’ve never been advocates of mixing beer with anything else, there are ways to have your cocktail and drink your Kräftig, too. Think about it like this – you’re an aspiring painter during the Renaissance and your mentor, Leonardo da Vinci, sticks his paintbrush in your beer. Obviously, paint doesn’t go with your local brew, but it’s da Vinci. Maybe the guy’s onto something here?
You’ve probably heard the saying “there are two kinds of people in this world…” followed by some sort of generalized statement that lumps people into two categories. Those who like Batman and those who like Superman. Morning larks and night owls. People who enjoy pineapple on their pizza and those who think the very idea is an abomination.
Sure, the baseball season’s well over halfway through, but there’s still a lot of ball left to play. Which means there’s still a lot of home games left to attend. Which means there’s still a lot of ballpark food left to eat (because you can’t just go to a game and not eat… that would be like taking “America” out of America’s pastime). And since everyone knows ballpark food is better with beer, it ultimately means there’s still a lot of Kräftig left to drink.
Here’s the deal, St. Louis: rooting for the home team starts with a beer in one hand and some grub in the other. So, grab a 24oz can of Kräftig Light or Kräftig Lager at one of these stadium locations:
*8th Street Market – Section 153
*Jack Daniel’s Bar – Section 142
*Broadway Market – Section 107
*Terrace Market – Section 452
and then chow down on some awesome food. Oh, and if you need help deciding what to pair with your favorite beer, here’s some of the grub we recommend for a good time:
Hey, it’s been a hot summer – hotter than a habanero in Hell (in other words: pretty damn hot) – so we understand if you haven’t gone outside all that much. But come on, it’s summer. The sun’s out. You should be too. Slather on some sunscreen if you’re really worried about things. Carry around one of those handheld fans like a dad at a theme park if it’ll make you feel better. Or you could just grab a can of Kräftig and let the good times roll. The lager’s refreshing and you can even use the can as an ice pack if you start to feel faint. It’s a win-win.
Of course, not all outdoor spaces are equal when drinking is involved. So, here’s some of our favorite places to drink Kräftig outside on a summer night (or afternoon… or morning if you’re into that):
Dads get a bad rap sometimes. Sure, your old man once conned you into going on a snipe hunt or asking the kind gentleman at the auto shop for blinker fluid, but let’s face it… you wouldn’t be who you are today without his antics. He was just teaching you invaluable life lessons from a place of love and fatherly wisdom. You should thank him, really. Buy the guy some beer. He deserves it. Continue reading
It’s always a good time for a beer, especially on April 7. You want a beer with your brunch? You can do that. Know why? Because this is America – land of the free and home of the brews – oh, and because April 7 is National Beer Day. That’s right… beer has a holiday. Which means if someone asks you why you’re pairing a Kräftig with some extravagant Eggs Benedict made with pork shoulder or pig ears or whatever part of the swine is in right now, you can just say you’re celebrating your favorite holiday.
Baseball season in St. Louis is kind of a big deal. And the first home game of the year is basically a holiday. Or it should be, at least. Seriously, is there a petition we could sign to make that a thing? Anyway, the city is home to the best fans in baseball rooting for the best team in the league. Naturally, that means Thursday’s Home Opener is going to be legendary – especially if you’re drinking the best (and only) Real American Lager in town.
Catch some pregame or postgame drinks with the Kräftig team at one of these fine downtown establishments:
You know that scene in A Few Good Men where Tom Cruise says he wants the truth and Jack Nicholson’s all like, “You can’t handle the truth!”? Yeah, here’s the deal: we think you can handle it. And the truth is… beer is good. There, we said it. And we feel better now. Speaking of feeling better, beer might actually help you feel better. Maybe. There’s a chance.
Anyway, here are 5 new reasons to try Kräftig. Whoops, we mean 5 unusual ways to unlock the potential benefits of Kräftig:
If we could, we would build a time machine out of a beer tank and make it run on pure lager. Sure, it would mean we couldn’t travel to any date B.L. (that’s Before Lager if you’re having trouble keeping up) without reserves, but who would want to go back to a time without the best damn beer in the world anyway? We’d do a couple test runs, just to make sure there weren’t any kinks. Send an intern back a couple minutes or something. And then we’d do some traveling of our own: to January 24, 1935.
